NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans Vice President of Athletics and Recreation Tim Duncan announced the hiring of Jordyn Eaton as Director of Spirit Squad Programs, leading the restructured pom squad. Eaton is the Director of Internship at Northwestern Mutual and is a professional football cheerleader.

“I am thrilled to join the University of New Orleans as the Director of Spirit Squad Programs,” said Eaton. “My goal as director is to bring a fresh vision that promotes professionalism and embraces diverse talents, creating a well-rounded team. As we develop exceptional athletes, New Orleans Pom will exemplify the spirit of New Orleans as we cheer on and entertain the Privateers and our local community.”
